THE B.B.C. THEATRE ORCHESTRA, under the direction of S. KNEALE KELLEY , will play during the programme
TOMMY HANDLEY first broadcast in January.
1926, since when he has appeared at the microphone on nearly three hundred occasions, including his last appearance as one of the rather obstreperous ' guests ' in Colombo's Hungarian programme. At one time he was worked almost too hard by the B.B.C.'; nowadays his appearances are less frequent, though none the less welcome. Lily Morris , after her first broadcast in the recent Mimic Hall, has quickly established herself as a radio star. They used to say her high-spirited methods would be too breezy for the mike-but they plainly aren't !
John Tilley , who was until lately a business' man. sprang to fame overnight with his appearance in Revudeville at the Windmill Theatre. Now his name appears regularly on the bills of the big music halls. Listeners heard him lately in the revue Around the Town. His microphone manner is vaguely suggestive of A. J. Alan. inconsequent rambling patter is absurdly funny. John Tilley is a real' find ' for broadcasting.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
